River Haven is a brand new venue in Vicksburg geared towards fun for kids.

River Haven just opened its doors and offers open play in a safe environment for children ages 0-9. Described as, “the premiere indoor play place for kids,” River Haven is, “designed to inspire play, learning, and friendship.” The goal of River Haven is to bring the community together by giving parents a safe and clean indoor area for meet ups with other parents and fun for children.

River Haven is reasonably priced for individual children and families. They currently offer open play drop ins and they also book birthday parties, baby showers, and venue rentals. In addition to open play, they have mommy and me, art, music, movement and parent classes. River Haven is looking into offering CPR classes as well.

Those seeking more long term access to the facility may save money by purchasing a membership. Guests can also browse a retail section geared towards moms and kids.

About the owner:

Owner, Emily Hendrix taught elementary school for five years. Now she is utilizing her passion for Elementary Education and Community Development to help make parenting less challenging for families in Vicksburg. “Being from Vicksburg and wanting to give back to my hometown, I saw a need for a safe place for younger kids to go inside and play,” said Hendrix. “River Haven provides an outlet for my experience.”

Hendrix has big hopes for the future of River Haven and its positive impact on the community. “(We) hope to be a place where community is fostered for families in Vicksburg.” Hendrix also wants to encourage grandparents to get involved in the fun. “There is something special about the bond a child shares with their  grandparent. Grandparents, please feel comfortable spending time with your grandchildren in our space!”

Hendrix encourages future members and guests to follow River Haven on Instagram and Facebook for regular updates and information.
